On the surface, the Mio Motiva Petite heart rate monitor watch--which offers a band designed specifically for petite wrists--is a stylish, everyday, wearable fitness accessory. But the Motiva Petite takes things one step further by integrating Mio's patented weight-management system, giving you all the motivation you need to reach your health and fitness goals. Your weight is directly connected to the foods you eat and the exercise you get. The Motiva Petite helps you manage the former by setting daily calorie targets and recording the number of calories you eat throughout the day. The Motiva Petite then tells you how well you're doing and sets off an alarm should you go over. When it comes to exercise, the device monitors your heart rate and makes sure it stays high during workouts for a maximum calorie burn. With the Motiva Petite, you can literally watch the calories burn off.
Specific features include the ability to accurately read your ECG heart rate without a chest strap, five exercise timers (count up, count down, count up with warmup, walk/run, and repeat), Mio's 3,500 Calorie Countdown program, and a user-accessible battery hatch. As a bonus, the Motiva comes with an interchangeable watch band in sky blue and orange, along with the MioSense Guide for Healthy Living, a booklet that includes information on health, nutrition, diet, fitness, and exercise, along with carb and calorie tables at the back for easy reference.
The story of Mio began in 1999 when it was created by entrepreneur and mother of three, Liz Dickinson. Like many of us, Liz balances family and career, leaving little time for fitness. After several unsuccessful attempts to achieve her fitness goals and shed the pregnancy weight-gain of her third child, Liz turned to a personal trainer for advice. While working with a trainer, Liz realized the key to getting in shape and staying in shape is to practice smart eating habits, monitoring calorie intake, and using a heart rate monitor to ensure that she exercises at the right level. Liz realized there wasn't a product available on the market that would easily help her follow her trainers advice.
Liz didn't have time to read labels and carry a calorie journal in her purse, nor did she have much patience for the uncomfortable chest strap she had to wear to get her heart rate. She knew there had to be a better way, so Liz used her technology and marketing savvy to create Mio, the worlds first heart rate monitor to work without a chest strap. And, it didn't stop with just heart rate, as Mio also has a patented calorie management system that offers a straightforward approach to managing your diet. With the help of Mio and a balanced diet, Liz was able to shed those unwanted pounds and gain the benefits that come with improved fitness: more energy, more vitality, and less stress, and help many others do the same with the creation of Mio's products.
